This june, Holly will be returning to Castlewood Treatment Center in Missouri to continue the fight against her eating disorder, but she can’t without YOUR help.
Holly is a wonderful and loving person and I want to help her get better! She’s struggled with anorexia and bulimia since middle school and has recently been diagnosed with DID (dissociative identity disorder(aka multiple personalities)) and she can get the help she needs at the Castlewood center. But it’s expensive and she needs to come up with payment before they put her back on the waiting list. Her health insurance only covers a portion of the cost.
It’s very hard for her to overcome her eating disorder alone because she will transition back from an alternate personality and not remember whether she has binged, purged, or starved, or a combination of those.
Her family, other than her husband and mother-in-law, are highly un-supportive because they know they’ll be blamed for her disorders. But Holly needs treatment no matter whose “fault” it is.
So please donate to my best friend. This is the biggest way that I know of to help her. <3
I’m Itchy :[ help please?
I made the terrible mistake of using my boyfriend’s body wash this weekend. Two days in a row. I usually don’t use soap on my body more than once a week (unless I’ve been to a beach/pool or something gross) and now I’m basically having a full-body reaction to it.
I’ve only had this kind of thing happen once before. It was summer and I had been using a scented bodywash and lotion on a daily basis. One hot afternoon my legs just broke out into this same kind of bumpy rash. I was miserable for a while but it didn’t spread like it has this time.
It started out on my forearms on Tuesday morning. I showered and used my gentle shea butter soap to try to reduce any residue that might be left over from his soap, but I think I only made it worse? Now the itchiness is everywhere except my face because I never put soap on it.
Last night I took an oatmeal bath and used Eucerin’s Calming Cream and I don’t know whether I should shower off that residue before I take another bath? or should I just shower and use the cream?
"Have you seen most of the plus-size sections out there? It’s horrifying. Whoever’s designing for plus-size doesn’t get it. The entire garment needs to be re-conceived. You can’t just take a size 8 and make it larger. In my travels, I’ve been an advocate for larger women. I’ve been talking to designers, but only a half-dozen make an effort. Most say, ‘I don’t want a woman who’s a size 10 or 11 wearing my clothes.’ Well, shame on you! It’s not realistic. We need to address real women with real needs."
I haven’t posted in a long time, but if it can withstand the rest of the holidays, I’ve lost five pounds just since my sister has been home to keep me active. =]
